Milkytracker manual (dunno where else to post sry)
« on: August 26, 2008, 18:07:19 »

Quote
Px Set note panning position
Syntax:   P
x = speed
Example:    C-4 ·1 P4 ···
··· ·· ·· ···
··· ·· PC ···
··· ·· ·· ···
Explanation:    

This is the volume column equivalent of 8xx panning, only with 1 digit resolution. P8 corresponds to 888, P9 to 899 and so on…
Tips:    

3xx and Mx share effect memory, so it's possible to initialize a portamento with a more precise 3xx value and sustain it with M0 freeing the effect column for arpeggios, note delays, tremolo or whatever.


is it just me or is the "Tips" part copy pasted from "Mx Portamento to note"

I think it was me who forgot to delete that. Fixed now.

That would be the browser cache.

Yup :)

Allright but this brings me to the next question: does the note panning in the volume column continue where the note panning in the effects column started so you can use note panning together with other effects on 1 key?

Yeah, it does. But you should note that whenever you insert a new note WITH an instrument number, the number resets things like volume and panning to the settings defined in the instrument editor.

Instrument number always resets the instrument, that's what I was trying to say I think. Even with 3xx and Mx, which only affect the sample.

Not entirely true, if u look on the following image, you can see the instruments 1 and 5 used, 1 being a normal tone, 5 being a snare sample. I hear only the normal tone with that sequence. It's even like this: it doesn't matter whether or not i fill in 1's or 5's at places where at that pic 5's are put, I still wouldn't hear a snare.

Ok this thread should have ended with

Yeah, it does.

because this is getting really messy. Obviously I misunderstood something you wrote and as a result we're not talking about the same thing anymore. I'm not arguing with what you're saying in your latest post.

I wasn't talking about switching instruments while doing a portamento because in .XM it's impossible to change the sample on the fly. And because in .XM a sample can only have one set of instrument settings, it doesn't matter which number is entered. The settings will always be reset to the sample's own initial values.

This is taking things a lot deeper than I did with my previous post where I only wanted to say that while portmento-to-note effects prevent a sample from restarting, they don't prevent an instrument number from resetting the instrument settings.
